A lucky win

The following position was reached yesterday in the County First Team match against Hertfordshire.   John Peters (176) was Black and his opponent was graded 160.

It's White to play.   White resigned as he couldn't see a way to save the game.  . What would you have played?

    N x g4!, If K x N its stalemate, otherwise the N will surely be able to get the other pawn eventually.

    Are you sure White resigned ? Nxg4 seems a bit obvious. Did he loose on time perhaps?

      I'm assured by the Suffolk captain, Ian Wallis, that this is what happened.
